Instruct Us For Your Conveyancing

If you are happy with the quote, we will guide you through the initial conveyancing stages and begin the legal process. It is worth noting that you will be asked to verify your identity and provide evidence of where the funds to purchase your property are coming from if you are buying. The team will be by your side every step of the way, ensuring that your best interests are protected throughout the process.
Support Throughout The Conveyancing Transaction Process
When you instruct our team to help you sell or buy your residential property, you can rely on us to collect all of the required information to aid the purchase or sale of your property.
As your conveyancing lawyer, we'll assist you in selling your property while also representing your mortgage lender to clear any registered mortgages or charges against your property. Here are the tasks we will undertake:
- Verify your property's ownership documents
- Provide the buyer's solicitor with the necessary ownership information
- Prepare and submit the Contract and other mandatory documents to the buyer's solicitor
- Liaise with your mortgage lender or any other involved entities
- Respond to any enquiries from the buyer's solicitor
- Arrange for you to sign the contract
- Approve the draft Transfer on your behalf
- Complete the transaction
- Clear any registered mortgages against your property
If you are planning to purchase a property, a residential conveyancing lawyer can help you through the legal process. Here is a list of the steps our solicitors and executives may take to secure your purchase:
- Check the seller's legal right to sell the property
- Ask questions and review the seller's answers to identify hidden issues
- Make searches with local authorities and other providers to identify potential issues
- Review and modify the contract to protect your interests
- Inform you about the results of searches, answers, and contract terms for informed decisions
- Follow lender's instructions for mortgage paperwork and procedures
- Arrange for you to sign the contract when satisfied with the terms
- Conduct pre-completion searches for smooth ownership transition
- Submit appropriate Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) return to comply with tax laws
- Register ownership and mortgage at Land Registry
If you're buying a property with someone else, our team can help you decide how to own it. There are two options: joint tenants, where you both own equal shares and the property automatically goes to the other person if one of you dies, or tenants in common, where you can own different shares and the property doesn't automatically go to the other person if one of you dies. Our team will explain the differences and help you choose the best option for you. They can also help with the legal paperwork to make sure everything is done correctly and legally.

When you choose us, you can rest easy knowing that there will be no surprises. Our fees vary depending on the value and nature of the transaction, but not based on your location. This means that customers in Birmingham and the wider UK will get the same level of professionalism and service. It is worth noting that our conveyancing fees do not include charges to other bodies, such as the Land Registry or HMRC.
